“India had the largest decline in Internet freedom in the year to April 2013, according to a new report on state censorship of online content in 60 countries, raising fears that restrictions on free speech in the country were tightening.”
When discussing the issue of internet restriction in class, I thought this topic was pretty interesting. I was able to find this article that talks about a few countries that have very restricted access but this particular article focuses on the partial freedom that India has. It explains that you could be charged for something as simple as liking or tagging posts on Facebook. I’ve copied another article I found interesting regarding Morocco, where under article 483 of the kingdom’s penal code, anyone found guilty of violating public decency risks up to two years in prison. Here, three teenagers were arrested for posting a picture of them kissing on Facebook. I just find it amazing how countries differ greatly on what is allowed on the internet based on their culture.
